"Hathor, Queen of Realms above, 
Hathor, Queen of Joy and Love, 
Hathor, Chief of Mystic nine, 
Hathor, Queen, all power be thine, 
Hathor, Hathor, Goddess hail!" 
sang the charming devotees as they pros 
trated themselves before their shrine, ir 
the Barn last Saturday night. The wor 
shipping priestesses and slaves were too 
numerous to mention, fifty in all; but the 
' principals were as follows : 
Queen, Lizbeth Laughton 

Princess, Ella Tilford 

Tabubu, sister of Queen, 

Katherine Denison 
Lucille Drummond 
Daphne Crane 
Sue Barrow 
Marguerite Mcintosh 

:en, Edith Ward 

Emily Shonk 

Ava Raze 

The Egyptian Prin- 

Alva, a slave, 
Nyssa, a slave, 
Phyllis, a slave, 
Herub, a wizard, 
Grania, captive qu 
Solo dancer. 

This operetta, ' 
cess," was unusually effective in atmos- 
phere and charm, and was most successful 
in bringing out different talent of the 
class, in contrast to the work of the splen- 
did Junior play. Against a background of 
green waHs and tablets of mysterious 
hieroglyphics, these Eastern princesses 
and slaves, a bending, pulsating group of 
carefully-blended colors, worked their gay 
tapestries, danced slow, mysterious Ori- 
ental measures and sang words strangely 
appropriate to current Wellesley condi- 
tions with haunting, syncopated, foreign 
tunes. Ella Tilfold, proud and stately, 
was an imposing princess, and carried her 
part well. Lizbeth Laughton's slighter 
figure and pointed face made a good con- 
trast, as they sat together on the throne, 
decked in blazing jewels, and surrounded by 
their worthy attendants. Miss Laughton's 
voice was heard to good advantage in the 
solo work. Lucille Drummond, as the 
lovely princess-slave, was excellent. 
Her strong, rich voice led the"~choruses 
and rang out in the solos; her beau- 
tiful arms and graceful motions charmed 
the audience to repeated encores. As for 
Katherine Denison, the inimitable Kath- 
erine, it is certainly the highest praise to 
say that she was completely lost in her 
grotesquely absurd and fascinating part 
of Tabubu, the "little" sister who was al- 
ways late and very unsophisticated. 
One felt not only the charm of her per- 
sonality, but her thoroughly dramatic 
instinct to act always, no matter how 
fantastic the part assigned. Her half- 
chanted song with the topical encore was 
one of the "hits" of the evening: 

"Now isn't it really extraordinary, 

You'll surely have to own 

That all this evening, there hasn't been a 

single flower thrown; 
But we hasten to state 
That our class iooS 
Does not lack popularity; 
We have friends without end, 
But we've asked them to spend all their 

On philanthropy. 

Now isn't it really extraordinary 

That 190Q of late 
Has been filled with commotion at every 

least motion 
Of quiet 1908. 
They all suspected 

Each time we collected to practise for 
the play, 

That we had desires 

To kindle the fires 
And burn our forensics that day." 

The comedy work of Nyssa and Phyllis 
in the weird, green light was most amus- 
ing ; Miss Crane's makeup was particularly 
effective. Marguerite Mcintosh, as the 
wizard, and Edith Ward as Captive Queen, 
were both well adapted to their parts, and 
put feeling into them. Especial mention 
should be made of the work of the chorus 
which was unusually smooth and showed 
careful and faithful drilling; it was probably 
the most finished chorus work ever done 
in the Barn. The accompanying music 
by Miss Brown was not only sympathetic, 
but showed great facility on' her part in 
following the singers. There were several 
charming tableaux, as in the marching 
duet of Miss Tilford and Miss Drummond, 
or in the worship at the shrine, when the 
flaring brazier, the white-robed priestesses 
with their archway of green palms, and 
the multitudinous bare white arms of the 
chorus, waving before the green back- 
ground, made a most effective picture. 
These tableaux, the spectacular effects, 
the splendidly-drilled chorus, _ and the 
charm of Miss Denison's and Miss Drum- 
mond's work, these were the best things 
of the evening. As for the flaws — do not 
let us dwell on them; we enjoyed the good 
parts so heartily that we can not remem- 
ber anything else. 


Mr. Hartman of the Massachusetts 
Civic League, gave a most suggestive talk 
before Economics Seven, on Saturday aft- 
ernoon, about the work of the Civic 
League and other organizations, whose 
aim it is to help the community by legis- 
lation, and to reach the legislators rather 
by rousing public sentiment than by any 
direct lobbying. Mr. Hartman made 
especial reference to the opportunities 
for influence open to women, by keeping 
themselves informed and in touch with 
the community, and then . using their in- 
fluence with the voters. If all the girls, 
especially the Seniors who are going home 
to settle down next year, could have heard 
this talk, they would surely feci keenly 
their responsibility of reading the papers, 
and using their influence powers wisely. 

Philanthrophy as a Profession. 

On Friday evening. May 24, Miss Alice 
Higgins, general secretary of the Associat- 
ed Charities of Boston, addressed the 
Economics Club on "Philanthropy as a 

After a brief comparison between the 
so-called charity — or almsgiving for the 
sake of personal salvation — prevalent in 
former centuries — and the sympathetic 
charity of to-day, Miss Higgins outlined 
for us the general organization and ad- 
vantages of the training-schools. To 
them we owe much of our realization that 
man, _ of whatever class, is a human, 
thinking being, governed by universal 
psychological laws, and demanding sym- 
pathetic comprehension quite as much as 
he does bread or money. Miss Higgins 
emphasized the demand of the training- 
schools for workers capable of this com- 
prehension, and of ability to learn as* well 
as to teach. In summarizing the disad- 
vantages commonly found among the 
younger "trained workers," she men- 
tioned this lack of readiness to learn ; the 
majority, following the example of the 
young girl who tried to instruct the 
mother of six as to how she should bring 
up the seventh, are willing only to teach. 

A saving sense of humor, good nature, 
enthusiasm and executive ability, these, 
according to Miss Higgins, are the forces 
and great essentials for a trained worker; 
without these, she is lost. The day is 
past when only the "failures" can indulge 
in charity; in 'fact, the "failures" can no 
longer hope to shine very brilliantly in a 
profession which demands an abundance 
of vitality, tact and wisdom. That this 
profession does require these qualities is 
quite evident from the demand for 
" trained workers" to hold positions of re- 
sponsibility connected with the Children's 
Court, Settlement organization, etc. Of 
course, such positions are filled only by 
the older and more experienced workers. 

Aside from the interest connected with 
the subject, and with several of the great 
movements, such as the "Tuberculosis 
Campaign," of which Miss Higgins spoke 
briefly, the lecture had a distinct, personal 
value. Miss Higgins' enthusiasm acted 
upon us as a kind of moral bracer ; we ah - 
sorbed statistics, happily ignorant of the 
fact, and were conscious only of s.Vl 
awakened, engrossing interest in the 
training schools and their future progress. 


An interesting detail of the play, Satur- 
day night, was the debut of the handsome 
new red velvet curtains, with which Miss 
McKellar has replaced the time honored 
old drop curtain. Miss McKellar also 
made her farewell speech, and while the 
audience cheered • the new President, 
Helen Cummings, heartily, it was with a 
very general pang of regret that we real- 
ized that the election of a new president 
meant the displacing of the old, who has 
led our Barn so merrilv this year, and 
won a warm place in all our hearts.

The Collbgb N'kws is happy i" add its 
voice to the many others that have greeted 
President Hazard. It seems right and 
natural to have our Head with us again; 
and certain as we have always been of her 
interest and sympathy, the \"ews as well 
as every other organization in tl 
feels a new inspiration in her presence. 
Since Miss Hazard last was at Wellesley. 
a new board has begun editing the News, 
and we are glad of this opportunity to ask 
our President to give us her approval, 
her censure, and her interest. 

With the choosing of rooms and courses, 
the singing on the steps, and the dancing 
of gym-suited dryads upon our campus, the 
realization is brought home to us with 
painful aCUteneSS, - the year's at the Spring 
and very soon College will be over for some 
months. In a lew weeks gnat pyramids

The most important event in the Wellesley world lately was 
Miss Hazard's return to college on Monday, May 20, after nearly 
a year's absence. To welcome her, the Seniors, in cap and 
gown, escorted her from the station to her home. The proces- 
sion was met at East Lodge by the Juniors, Sophomores and 
Freshmen, lined up in single file on both sides of the road. In 
deference to Miss Hazard's known feeling in regard to cheering, 
the student body expressed its welcome only by singing "To 
Alma Mater." In the evening the president was given a 
serenade. Miss Hazard led chapel, Tuesday morning, and an 
unusually large attendance showed everyone's pleasure at 
having her with us again. 

A talk on "Philanthropic Work as a Profession, Its Oppor- 
tunities and Its Rewards," was given by Miss Alice Higgins of 
the Boston Associated Charities before the Economics Club on 
Friday evening, May 24. 

On Sunday evening, June 2, Dr. John H. DeForest will speak 
at the vesper services. Dr. DeForest will tell of some of his per- 
sonal experiences as a missionary in Japan, where he has worked 
for thirty-two years. Those who have taken mission study 
work on Japan know of him as the author of "Sunrise in the 
Sunrise Kingdom." As he has been in the country only a few 
days, his information is very up-to-date. 

Among the guests at the wedding of Miss Rachel Brooks were 
Mrs. Sallie Moody Pierce, Miss Maud Arnold, Miss Mary Bliss 
and Miss Katherine Noble. 

On Monday afternoon, May 27, the Wellesley Graduate Club

and Regulations, Inter-sport Regulations (which are entirely 
new) and Duties of Heads of Sports, Captains and Coxswains. 
Circulars of Information on three heads, — Training, Discipline 
and Uniform Costumes, are yet to be perfected. Beginning 
with freshmen electing gymnasium courses next year, there 
will be a new required gymnasium costume. 

On the evening of May 28, Senorita Carolina Hindobro gave 
an illustrated lecture on "The Christ of the Andes," at the 
Wellesley Congregational Church. 

Gertrude Marvin and J. Isabelle Newell have resigned from 
the Senior debating team, and Florence Plummer and Gladys 

Doten have been chosen to represent the class in their stead.

On Wednesday, May 22, Miss Hazard gave a reception for the 
Faculty "at the president's house. 

On Sunday, May 26, William C. Cowperthwaite of Philadel- 
phia held a Friends' meeting here at Wellesley. As the meet- 
ing was not solely intended to explain the views of the Friends, 
or to exemplify the character of their Meeting, but for the pur- 
pose of worship, all the students were invited to attend. 

On Thursday evening, May 23, the regular mid-week prayer 
meeting of the Christian Association was held at College Hall. 
Margaret Noyes led the meeting. Her subject was "The Es- 
sentials of Worship, 'In Spirit and in Truth." ' John 4: 24. 

Students may be glad of a reminder of the fact that next 
Saturday is June first, and that before that date all students 
wishing to take work in more than five departments, or more

On Friday afternoon, May 24, the students in Art 13 listened 
to a lecture on "Leonardo da Vinci" by Professor Niemuyer, 
head of the Art Department at Yale. Professor Niemuyer 
sketched Da Vinci's life and gave an appreciation of him as 
scientist and artist, according him a place greater than that 
occupied by either Raffael or Michelangelo, because of his 
versatility, his freedom alike from the gloom of medievalism 
and the traditions of classicism, and his deep philosophy of life 
and insight into the soul.

The increase of interest in printing as an arl naturally arouses 
in its various aspects such as type, spacing, the title

On Tuesday afternoon, May 21, Dr. Peabody, principal of 
the Groton School, gave a talk to the Pedagogy classes. This 
lecture might well have been the last one of the lecture course, 
for it was an inspiration to everyone who heard it. Dr. Pea- 
body is an idealist without any sentimentality, for he has 
proved the worth of his theories by long years of practical ex- 
perience. His many good stories let us into the secret of his 
success, and before he had talked long, he had convinced us 
i hat leaching is one of the great callings, because, as he put it in 
his half-humorous way. "teaching is hard work, but great 
fun." He defined the aim of education as the development of 
the all-round man, emphasizing the influence of the school as 
the strongest factor in this development. He spoke of the worth 
of athletics, community spirit and close intimacy between teach- 
er and pupils; but his chief message to us. as would-be teachers, 
was that the strength of the nation rests upon the school, and 
the school upon the personality of the teacher. 


Almost every morning at this time of the year there is cheer- 
ing in College Hall centre for the newly-elected officers of the 
ions. And in the midst of our enthusiasm we 
■ard and wonder what sort of development the new 
Officers "ill bring to each organization during the coming year. 
In cheering for Miss Little and Miss Keim as President and Vice- 
President of the Athletic Association we feel that, under their 

guidance, the Association should make great advance in njoS.

Miss Elizabeth M. Gardiner, who held the Alice Freeman 
Palmer Fellowship last year and spent the year in Italy, writes 
as follows : " A part of my work this year, as well as last, has been 
collecting general impressions of Italian painting and sculpture. 
I have visited the principal galleries and churches in Rome, 
Florence, Naples and Venice, and taken careful notes on repre- 
sentative pictures. It has been my good fortune to be within 
reach of Perugia in these first days of the Exposition of Umbrian 
Art there, so that I have seen many examples of the early mas- 
ters from the Fabbriano, Gubbio, and Perugian Schools which 

would otherwise have been almost inaccessible I 

expect to finish the spring with a journey across the Apennines 
to Urbino, where there are frescoes which may have relation 
with my problem, and shall then go up the coast to Venice. 
This will be my last year in Italy, much to my regret; but I 
look forward to a year at the School in Athens before returning 
to America." 

Miss Mariana Cogswell, formerly of the Latin Department at 
Wellesley, has spent some days this last week in Wellesley. 
She has just returned from a most delightful cruise in the

On Friday afternoon, the twenty-fourth of May. the New 

England Intercollegiate Press Association held its twenty-sixth 

annual meeting at the Copley Square Hotel, Boston. Mr. Boyn- 

ton, the president of tl is an Amherst man, and 

Bascom of Wellesley. 

Mr Boynton opened the meeting by a short speech concern- 
ing the aims of the association, and a brief resume of its history. 
Mr. Boynton suggested that since these annual meetings rep- 

erely the intellectual side of the association, that an 
annual social evening would be equally interesting. Miss Eva 
West of Wellesley then commenced the speeches. Miss West 
said thai the growing tendency of all college publications was 
literary for what is merely "news." The plai eof 
the magazine is the rather difficult one of representing literary 
effort in ...inunction with that which is purely college news; 
it ought ti 1 keep in touch with outside interest, but if this outside 
ts no connection with the college, its place is certainly 
not in the college publication. The kind of article which is pre- 
eminent lv lining, is the article by those who have done individual 
investigation of any kind, by thi >se who have come in touch with 
interesting localites and people, and by the alumna- and faculty; 
this kind of article is pertinent and interesting. It is not easy 
to decide whether art and the drama belong here, or in the more 
hasty work of a daily or weekly paper. 

Miss Fuller of the "Smith College Monthly" then explained 
a little about that publication. It has no advertising, but man- 
ages to get along very well without it. It endeavors to keep in 
touch with all the different interests and departments, and is 
easily sustained by the general interest of the students. Litera- 
ry ability is so widely recognized in Smith that every one is 
anxious and eager to have their name and work appear in the 
"Monthly." There is great pride, and a genuine spirit of com- 

The advisability of offering prizes was next discussed, and 
then Mr. Hinkel, representative from the Harvard "Crimson," 
gave a short speech. Mr. Hinkel strongly emphasized the im- 
portance of an Intercollegiate Press Bureau. The influence of 
collegiate journalism is rapidly widening, and this influence can 
be mantained and helped by the colleges keeping in close touch 
and unison with one another. He then outlined the system by 
which the "Crimson" is managed. The board has about 
twenty-five members and every class is represented; the officers 
are changed every half year. The "Crimson" tries to make its 
influence felt, and to correct anything in the college life which is 
not right. 

Mr. Hoole of the "Tech." which is published three times a 
week, said they had been having great difficulty latch in stim- 
ulating interest and awaking any spirit of competition. Next 
year they hope to add to tin- "Tech" in many ways, giving fre- 
quent supplements which will contain research work, depart ment- 
al notes, etc. He also urged an intercollegiate picss bureau. 

After Mr Hoole's speech the minutes of the last convention 
were read, and the following officers for next year were elected. 

Mr. I [01 lie of Tech. President 

Miss Fuller- of Smith, Vicet-President. 

Mr Robinson of Bowdoin, Secretary-Treasurer. 

Mr Smith of Hates, Executive Hoard. 


On Friday evening the dramatic society of Amherst College 

gave "Twelfth Night" to a large and appreciative audience at 

the Wellesley Town Hall. The college, village and Dana Hall 
were all well represented. 

The play showed careful study; the lines were well rendered,

At the annual banquet of the Cornell College of Arts and 
Sciences recently held at Ithaca, the men vigorously applauded 
addresses advocating the complete segregation of the co-eds. 
The opening gun was fired by Professor Everett W. Olmsted of 
the French Department. 

Professor Olmsted opposed the participation of the girls in the 
class elections, urged their elimination from the management of 
such university publications as the Cornellian and Class Book, 
declared that 'their participation in Class" Day detracted from 
the dignity of that occasion, and insisted that they have a class 
day and graduation ceremonies of their own, which might be 
modelled upon those of other women's colleges. Finally, he 
expressed the hope that soon women would be debarred from 
the men's classes, and at least have separate instruction, if not 
a separate faculty. His remarks were greeted with enthusiastic 
applause. — Ex. 

At the meeting of the Junior Class of Cornell, held Wednesday, 
May 22, the attempt to deprive the co-eds. of the right to vote 
for the majority of class officers was ignominiously defeated. 
The co-eds. attended the meeting in a body, but their vote was 
hardly needed, for almost as many men voted in their favor as 
against them. This action means the end of the fight for 
segregation in student activities at Cornell. — Ex. 

In one of our recent exchanges we have come across the 
following interesting facts: The founder of the first 
American undergraduate publication was Daniel Webster. 
The name of this paper was the Dartmouth Gazette, and it was 
founded in 1S01. This paper is to-day the legitimate father of 
one thousand five hundred children ; sixteen of whom are daily, 
and three hundred and fifty, weekly newspapers. Most of the 
others are monthlies. — Ex. 

The University of Maine is soon to add another activity to 
the already large scope of its work. The new department is to 
be called the University of Maine Forest Experimental Station, 
and the work is to be co-operative between the university and 
the National Forest service. The object of this experimental 
work is to determine by systematic experimental planting, the 
species and cultural methods best suited to Maine. — Transcript. 

Andrew Carnegie is to have his name perpetuated in Chicago 
by a university bearing his name. The new institution will 
'i manv sciences. — Ex. 

teach many sciences.- 

The subject for debate between Yale and Harvard this year 
is: "Resolved, That further restriction of immigration is 
undesirable. ' ' — Ex. 

The Pope has sanctioned the long-debated proposal to es- 
tablish a Roman Catholic college for women at Oxford. — Ex. 

Thirtv-eight states have sent Rhodes scholarship students to 
Oxford.— Ex.

A First Prize of One Thousand Dollars, and a 
Second Prize of Five Hundred Dollars in Cash ' 
are offered for the best studies presented by Class A, composed 
exclusively of all persons who have received the bachelor's 
degree from an American college in 1896, or thereafter; and 
A First Prize of Three Hundred Dollars, and a 
Second Prize of One Hundred and Fifty Dollars, 
in Cash 
are offered for the best studies presented by Class B, composed 
of persons who, at the time the papers are sent in, are under- 
graduates of any American college. No one in Class A may 
compete in Class B; but any one in Class B may compete in 
Class A. The committee reserves to itself the right to award 
the two prizes of $1,000 and S500 to undergraduates, if the 
merits of the papers demand it. 

The ownership of the copyright of successful studies will vest 
in the donors, and it is expected that, without precluding the 
use of these papers as theses for higher degrees, they will cause 
them to be issued in some permanent form. 

Competitors are advised that the studies should be thorough, 

expressed in good English, and although not limited as to 

length, they should not be needlessly expanded. They should 

be inscribed with an assumed name and whether in Class A, or

be received, and accompanied by a sealed envelope giving the 

real name and address of the competitor, and the institution 

which conferred the degree, or in which he is studying. The 

papers should be sent on or before June 1, 1908, to

At the- concert. Monday evening, May 27, in Billings Hall, 
the Welleslev College Orchestra made its first appearance. So 
far as is known, this is the only organized attempt in the history 
of Welleslev togive to the College a well-balanced, well-equipped 
body of instrumentalists devoted to the performance of high 
class music. 

At present the orchestra is neither well-balanced nor well- 
! but all things must have a beginning and our orches- 
tra his certainly made a creuitable one The strings, partic- 
ularly the nrst violins, are strong and true; the double-bass. 
played by Miss M. L. Mcintosh, who has already had some 
experience in orchestral playing, furnishes a good foundation. 
There is great need for a viola or two, a clarinet and flute. Here 
are chances for girls to help music at Wellesley by volunteering 
to learn these instruments. 

As to the music on Monday night, the opening march by 
Mendelssohn showed the power and unity of playing; the Haydn 
Andante was very daintily played, and the Fantasie on the 
by Rubinstein, gave much pleasure. That the orches- 
tra has some skillful solists Miss Biddle and Miss Judkins proved 
in their duct. Altogether the power, sweetness and versatility 
Orchestra are surprising, when one considers its youth, 
and they reflect credit on the training by Mr. Foster. 

The choir sang very acceptably the Wagner Spinning Soul:. 
and the two Kipling Songs were bright and • pleasing. Miss 
Cummings' solo was very much liked as were Miss Drummond's 
in the linal chorus. In the last number the orches- 
tra and choir united, with Mr. Hamilton at the organ. lien 
the sonority was great, indeed almost overwhelming in the
